the food in general in Belgium is very high quality, De Stove delivered. the service was homey and welcoming. Make sure you have some Northsea shrimp, or was it grey shrimp. Crazy delicious.

This is a small family restaurant in the heart of the old town but away from the crowd. We had lunch at De Stove on a Sunday at the end of August. We tried to book for dinner but it was full so we went for a late lunch at 1.30pm. We chose the fixed price menu which came with... More

We were in Bruge for a couple of days and decided to try our luck with De Stove. We were not let down. It is small restaurant with around 20 diners max and when we were there were about ten. The food and service is fantastic in the style of one of those family restaurant very common on the continent.... More

Had a wonderful meal in this superb restaurant.We selected the 65euro menu which included matching wines.Every course was a delight to the senses.The fennel soup with smoked salmon really whetted the appetite.The turbot with samphire and cauliflower purée was delightful and matching white wines worked to complement the flavours.The duck dish and accompanying jumilla red wine from Spain was mouthwatering...

Booked this restaurant unseen, following the good reviews on Tripadvisor, as it was a Sunday night and there are not too many other restaurants open. We booked for a 7:30pm dinner and as it happened we were running a bit late and only got to our hotel in the middle of Bruges at 7:30. We mentioned our reservation at the... More

A small,intimate restaurant in the heart of the old town in an avenue just off the main streets. It seems a husband and wife team turn out great meals and service.It's not what is sometimes described as classic fine dining,none of the big showy menus and fawning staff dressed way better than you ever dress.It's cozy instead and it's relaxed...

We had dinner at De Stove on our anniversary. I read the tripadvisor reviews and the menu before we booked and had high expectations. De Stove is a cozy restaurant located in the heart of Bruges. The service was prompt and efficient and the food delicious. Our anniversary was recognized and we received polite applause from other diners which we... More

We booked for two via email about a week in advance and were lucky enough to get a table on a busy Monday night. When we arrived we were kindly greeted by the manager and shown to our table. The restaurant was cosy, seating around 20 and had a brilliant atmosphere. Both the evening menu and the wine menu were... More

Travel to Bruges, Belgium regularly so have been to many restaurants over the years. The lamb was spot on and cooked exactly as requested. You may pay a few more euros than the 'Tourist' restaurants but its worth it. One of my top favourites in Bruges, will always go back

We ended up at De Stove after we were unable to make reservations at our restaurant of choice. We strolled the streets trying to find somewhere interesting, and stumbled on this unassuming exterior. We were offered a table for two despite no booking, were never rushed, and enjoyed lovely authentic cooking in an intimate setting (it's not a big place).... More
